And if a guy posts and always interacts with people so that he can sell his stuff later, then he's in his in own hell, anyway, so we shouldn't be so mad at him. :p

I do my lil' part to promote independent creators here from the forum, affiliated with the Outhouse or one or more of the outhouse posters, as well as people from other areas as well.

But..

I would like to see something in place that takes it to the next level and really promotes and feature the hell out of indy creators! I'm talking front page stuff even..something on a regular basis that everyone knows you'd want to come to the outhouse to participate cause it's a good way to join up with like minded people in a community but also your stuff will get some feature and rotation on the front face.

2nd But!

That'd be a big ordeal and would require an actual team and resources. Not just one person. It'd have to be a sub-community and crew that are willing and able to put in equal time for something that mammoth.

I think it might be a good idea.

Yea in theory I think so too. But realistically it'd take like a gang of six hard core up for the challenge people that can gel and cover each other's backs as a crew and that are really into promoting and maintaing that indy presence.

I'm talking: press, promos,punctuation(not me), and prowess with the website here all working on a schedule for no money! Not even a thank you!


Ok, ok...

maybe we could work in a thank you.

Be nicer to new posters bro. :p Besides, if they turn out to be awful posters, you can just let loose and even then you'd be more in the right, you know?

Why should he get offended because I pointed out what he was doing? If he's offended by his own action then perhaps he shouldn't be doing it.

No, he'd be offended by how you're treating him, not by why you're treating the way you are.
Just because you're treating him like that because of what he is doing doesn't mean that if he gets offended he will be offended by what he is doing, jumping the idea that he'll be offended by what you're doing.
Just give these dudes a chance. I don't understand why they should be offended to promote or tell people about their comic. I'd understand if they spam the place, but if they post a link or two in a post? It's not so bad Bender.

I dunno, I guess an interview and a frontpage story would do if the book is really cool.

Here's an idea guys: you want the Artist forum to be all serious and stuff? Then ask Jude to disconnect it from the Asylum. Because as it's set up right now it's like attaching a glee club building onto a seedy biker bar. Sure you'll get more attention that way but is it the kind of attention you want?

I mean that you ignored the idea that he might be offended at what you're doing, not at what he's doing. Like, you jumped that idea.

And you ignored the idea that it's not my fault if he gets offended because I pointed out a simple truth.

Hey, I like truth, it's cool. But if I see some new guy doing something practically harmless and just lutz him for it while calling it how it is, wouldn't I be kind of rude?
The guy doesn't know you Bender, he doesn't know that you don't mean much by your lutzing him or that this is a lutz-filled community--like, wait 30 posts or something. :p

Introduce yourself first maybe. Hi, I'm Bender, and I am here to lutz you.

you're right, attaching a glee club building onto a seedy biker bar would probably be a bad idea. but the biker bar probably doesn't encourage glee club members to have a drink there, while the outhouse encourages comics and comics-talk.
i think the guy should be blamed more for not talking about his comics than for linking them
